2017-18 Biweekly PTA Newsletter - Issue date 12-15-2017


At our monthly Parent Teacher Organization meeting held at the Middle School last Thursday, our treasurer presented the school principals with a check for $75,000! This money is the full amount promised to help fund art, science, music, and both libraries during the 2017-2018 school year. In addition to those funds, your Parent Teacher Organization still has over $50,000 that we will spend this year to support field trips and assemblies at both schools and important community and cultural events such as the lantern festival, field day, and science night. Thank you for all of your help in fundraising to support these important programs at our schools and happy holidays!
